This group lesson requires no previous tennis experience.  It is done on a court with racquets and low compression balls.  The coach will keep the participants moving through easy conditioning drills by running and shuffling forward, backward, and side to side.  Please wear court shoes.  All levels of fitness can “improve their game” together.



This group fitness class will combine all the major components of fitness – cardio, strength, and flexibility – for a total body work-out.  Participant requests will determine the weekly work-out.  A variety of formats and equipment will be used.  All levels of fitness can “play” together.



This philosophy and method of training is designed to appeal to all interested in developing stability, mobility, flexibility, and total body integrated strength.  The mat exercises focus on functional center core conditioning, along with improving posture and alignment.  All levels of fitness can “engage the powerhouse” together.
